Sons of Soil: A Constitutional or Covenant Federalism? | Romit Nandan Sahai

In Sons of Soil: A Constitutional or Covenant Federalism? An Analysis of the Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Bill, 2020, Romit Nandan Sahai examines the constitutionality of the Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Bill, 2020. The author argues the constitutionality of the bill on two grounds: first, the constitutionality of domicile reservation; second, the implementation of that reservation to the private sector. The author concludes by criticising the bill’s definition of domicile and lack of economic soundness. The author argues that the courts ought to take a more active role as a result of which such a bill ought to be struck down.
